“Beautiful villa overlooking the ocean.”

This villa was even better than we expected. Be aware though if you are elderly you have to climb a very steep hill to get there. We are two elderly women one with sciatica and the climb was very difficult for us. Also bring all of your own paper towels and toilet paper as they will only allow you one extra roll. I wish we had been in better shape, as it is a beautiful non touristy little town with some nice restaurants and beautiful ceramics to buy. We left early as we could not navigate the hill, but would recommend it to anyone in good shape.

Yes we only for courtesy to our guest upon arrival we make then find soap and toilet paper.
Then being a vacation home not a b&b or hotel our guest must buy sugar, salt ect and toilet paper.
Our caretaker is available to help and often with our cars accompany our guest to make shopping. Sorry but do not exggerate we are in Amalfi Coast not in the Dolomites.
ps Ask and we will help you, in twenty years of activity I have had guest truly handicapped

“Be prepared for some inconveniences, but it's worth it.”
Reviewed 30 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Quick tips for newcomers to Vietri sul Mare. This is the beginning of the Amalfi coast, and Veitri is very nice, with some cool little streets, but it is not very “touristy,” except for the presence of so many ceramics shops. Local food shops (for groceries) are open early, and then closed by about 1pm until 5 or 6pm, though some stay closed. Most people do not speak English. I don’t begrudge them that – we used the heck out of our five or six Italian phrases – but you should be aware of it. People are friendlier if you try to start in Italian, no matter how badly you botch it. Then, they’ll cut you plenty of slack.
If you need to get to Salerno, buses numbered 9 and 4 will get you there. They leave about every half hour, depending on traffic, and the mood of the bus driver. The best place to catch them is on the main road that passes by the ceramic factory. Basically, you pass near the bus stop every time to you walk to town from Casa Sorvillo. One day we caught a bus to Salerno, and the a boat to Amalfi and Positano; it was well worth it.
And now, the Casa: There is so much about Casa Sorvillo to love. I wanted to rate it 5/5 the minute we walked in the door. It is more spacious than you can tell from the pictures. The view is better than you can tell from the pictures. It is an altogether lovely, sweet place to stay.
However, I can’t rate it as highly as I would like to. When we arrived, the heat was off, the water to the bathrooms was off, the gas to the stove was off. This is not a difficult thing to correct, and Mr. Delgado, the caretaker was unfailingly friendly, polite and helpful, but it should have been done before we arrived. Once the heat was turned on, we did not get any heat, but we did get water leakage. Once the water was turned on in the bathrooms, we got more water leakage, and one toilet did not function. Again, all this should have been corrected before guests were due to stay. A day later we discovered that the water to the clothes washer was also shut off. Again, it was easily corrected, but again, since it was so easy, why wasn’t it done before we arrived?
Our problems with heat continued throughout the week, which was rather chilly. Several nights, it was very uncomfortable, unless we were under blankets, and wearing warm clothing.
Some things that we also surprises to us: we had to pay extra for electricity (for our family of four, about 10 euro for the week). We also had to pay extra for the heat, which was about 40 euro. That’s the one that really bugs me, since what we got for that was about 3 nights of heat and four of cold. Heat shouldn’t be a problem during most of the tourist season of course, but it bothered me to be charged for something that really never worked quite correctly.
I say all this so that travelers aren’t surprised if things don’t all work in the Casa the way you expect them to.
Having said that, I would absolutely stay there again. It is quiet, safe (you are behind two gates) and beautiful. Mr. Delgado is a wonderfully kind, friendly, helpful man. We have happy memories from Casa Sorvillo that we will treasure for a long time to come.

Hi
maybe after three months of works at the casa Delgado was not immediately to come up with the news.
It is twenty years that I rent my home and we did not have all these problems. I hope that after every year during the winter months I spend time and money to rejuvenate the possible has made my clients appreciate my continued flush to make the home comfortsble for my guest. for us is very important that the guest feel at home and want to come back to see us

“A Gem in the Med!”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My husband, daughter and I just spent two GLORIOUS weeks in Vietri at Casa Sorvillo.
It was absolutely wonderful! The weather was superb, but the "home away from home" was all we had hoped for and more. The owner, along with the caretaker, Delgado, could not have been nicer and more helpful. The house itself had everything we wanted, well equipped kitchen, large rooms, comfort, ambience and views to die for!
We based ourselves out of here for two weeks....visited the beach, almost daily and were easily able to travel to Amalfi, Salerno, Naples, and Positano without a problem.
The bus transportation is easy to use and can take you to the train in Salerno within 20 minutes. It took us a day or two to figure out the timing of things, transportation and the shop being opened in town. Americans don't close their shops from 2-6, so it took some getting used to. We did all of our grocery shopping in town and after two days, knew where to find everything from toliet paper to cheese! The tolling of the bells became a very familiar sound, as did the almost nightly fireworks in and around Vietre. We saw a wedding almost every day, realizing that people can get married on weekdays..ha!
Some good things to know......you don't need a car! The walk to town is very manageable...a good downhill 5-7 minute walk, and a steep 5-10 minute walk coming back. It was great exercise. You can buy your bus tickets at the Tobacci shop right as you come into the town from the Casa. They also close for lunch and siesta, and we also noted they were closed on Mondays when we were there.. There is another Tobacci shop further into the center of town. The pizza at Sud Est was great as was the pasta at Nonna's Pizzeria, more into the center of town. We bought our wine at the little souvenir shop at the foot of the hill from the Casa. It is right next to the Salesian Church. Lucky for us the beach remained open with chairs and umbrellas until the last day we were there, 26 Sept. So we lucked out there. The Ceramic factory, again at the foot of the hill from the Casa, has great buys on their seconds of Vietre pottery. They do ship to your home country as well.
We took the crazy local bus to Amalfi for dinner one evening and it was a white knuckle ride, but well worth doing once! We ate at the Marina Grande....a wonderful upscale restaurant...highly recommend it. The beds were very comfortable at the Casa and the presence of a washing machine proved to be a good thing for us. We learned you have to turn the hot water tanks on at least 30 minutes before showers....again something most Americans do not have any experience with. The access to the patio was amazing! We dined El Fresco every evening and quickly adapted the late hour dinners while in Italy.
Visiting the town square in the evenings was lively! It is a great spot to have a late night cappechino and "people watch": Best gelato in Vietre...Centrale Cafe in town. Great Barista and great gelato! We are definitely coming back to Vietre and staying at the Casa or if there are more of us, the Villa!

Beautiful quarters in lovely little town that is a bit less touristy than most of the Amalfi coast. Quiet, fully equipped, wonderful views from the terrace. Convenient to a multitude of interesting spots within 1 hours drive.
